Queen Elizabeth’s Unique Cake-Cutting Style Leaves Everyone At The Big Lunch Speechless!
Who knew the Queen could pull a joke like this! Quashing the myth that one must perform duties with a straight face, the 95-year-old royal monarch added a twist to her cake-cutting ceremony that no one could have anticipated.
Recently during an outing with Camilla Parker Bowles (Duchess of Cornwall) and Kate Middleton (Duchess of Cambridge), Queen Elizabeth II flaunted her sword handling skills at the most unexpected moment. Introducing everyone to an all-new way of cutting cakes, she left them utterly speechless with the weirdness and hilariousness of it all.
The Queen’s funny remark
On June 11, 2021, Queen Elizabeth, Camilla Bowles, and Kate Middleton attended the Big Lunch reception hosted at the Eden Project site. While there, the three royal women met with the volunteers of the upcoming 2022 Platinum Jubilee celebration, which aims at honoring 70 years of the Queen’s reign.
Into the ceremony, when the people called upon the Queen to cut the cake, instead of using the regular cake knife, she picked up a large sword, much to the astonishment of everyone gathered around (wonder if Charlie Chaplin’s spirit overcame her!).
Amidst the confusion, someone pointed out that a knife was present on the table, but maybe the senior royal just wasn’t in the mood to be “proper” for once as she brushed off the suggestion nonchalantly. Then, sporting a childish twinkle in her eyes and a sly grin on her lips, she quipped that she’d noticed the knife but preferred to cut the cake with the sword because it was more “unusual.”
As everyone burst out laughing, the Queen managed to cut out a perfect slice with the sword with a little assistance from Camilla. And she seemed pretty proud of herself since afterwards, she commented that the slice looked “pretty good!”
Her funny streak wasn’t limited to the cake cutting
Earlier in the day, when the Queen had joined other world leaders for a group photograph at the beginning of the G7 summit, she made another wisecrack. The monarch questioned if she was supposed to look happy in the picture, even if she wasn’t enjoying the moment! (Cute, ain’t it? Almost childlike.)
Needless to say, her question brought a smile to the world leaders’ faces, while Boris Johnson (Prime Minister of the UK) commented, “Yes.”
A busy weekend
Since the G7 summit began, the royal family has been busy with numerous events.
In addition to the cake cutting, June 11 also saw Kate accompanying the First Lady of the United States, Jill Biden, to an elementary school in Hayle, Cornwall. The two ladies interacted with the children and teachers of the school and even participated in a round table discussion with experts on childhood development. Thereafter, the Queen invited the US President and his wife for tea at Windsor Castle before their G7 summit trip ended on June 13.
